Elijah House Emergency COVID Shelter July 2020 – Sept 4, 2022
The Elijah House Emergency COVID Shelter was a 32 bed Emergency Shelter for people coping with homelessness. It offered a place for people without housing to shelter. And it was a place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Meals, laundry service, showers, and personal items were provided at the shelter. Elijah House Foundation staff provided Case Management to connect shelter residents with services.
Housing Navigation was offered to help clients gain permanent housing. The shelter also provided Independent Living Training and Job Development with the Elijah House Foundation Work Crew Program.
The Elijah House Emergency COVID Shelter case manager and housing navigator are working successfully to secure housing for every person currently at the Elijah House Emergency COVID Shelter.
All of the 32 current shelter residents will be placed into alternate housing by September 4.
Elijah House Foundation managed the relocations through working with Lake County agencies, by connecting clients with their families, and from the generosity of local philanthropists.
